Title: PCS Cannot import HTML or Documentation Templates
Post by: philchudley on June 29, 2021, 09:42:56 pm
Hi All

I tried to import some resources into my repository accessed via PCS. I was a bit surprised to be shown an warning diagram stating that Documentation and HTML Templates cannot be imported using a PCS connection and to use ODBC instead.

All other resources imported just fine.

Is any reason as to why the import of Documentation and HTML Templates is not supported by PCS?
Will support for this import be added in the future?

I am using PCS version 4.2.64

Thanks

Phil

It is a known issue that there are certain functions that cannot be carried over an HTTP/HTTPS connection. Unfortunately, I don't think that these functions are documented anywhere.

We have 2 use cases for using Sparx EA and PCS. One of them is administrative usage and it involves using an ODBC connection to the database. The other one does involves having Sparx EA and PCS communicating over HTTP/HTTPS.
